In general, this panel examined core jurisdictional issues presented throughout the rest of the conference including:
1) Which entities currently have the power to regulate charities and how they are exercising that jurisdiction, including whether they are focusing on the proper entities, over- or under- regulating, and whether they are cooperating effectively; 2) What the future looks like with regard to these same jurisdictional questions; and 3) Suggestions as to how to improve the distribution and exercise of jurisdiction.
